After making fun of it on social media in recent times, the 17-year-old singer, dancer, actor and YouTube personality, Jojo Siva has emerged as gay.
Siwa first indicated in her TeakTalk video that her 31 million (and growing) followers were posted on Thursday. In the video, she dances “Born This Way”, a 2011 smash hit by Lady Gaga that is widely regarded as an LGBTQ anthem. By far the most popular video on Tikotok, the video has received over 4.5 million likes and over 25 million views.
Among the more than 260,000 comments on the video, many prominent YouTube influences, such as James Charles, Coleen Ballinger, Nikki De Jagger, Breitman Rock and more, congratulated and praised her.
On Friday, Siwa posted a more definite message, sharing a picture of himself wearing a shirt that read “Best. Gay. Cousin. Ever.” And saying that his cousin got it for him.
Twitter received praise and positive reactions for Siva, making it a trending topic on Friday afternoon.
“If you ‘swag’ backwards, it’s ‘gay’. Coincidence ??” wrote Lil Nash X, who surfaced publicly on Twitter in June 2019.
Siwa also posted an Instagram photo of herself wearing an iridescent Gucci track jacket on Thursday, with thousands of comments from fans including composers Luke Eisner, Paris Hilton and other celebrities congratulating her.
As a dancer, Siva first gained fame on the Lifetime reality series “Dance Moms” and soon skyrocketed with her fashion, accessories and music aimed at a younger audience. She signed with Nickelodeon in 2017 and appeared in the TV movie “Blurt,” “Lip Sync Battle Shorts,” and is the youngest contestant ever on Fox’s “The Mask Singer.”
